For the Traveler, who is unable to make a trekking trip to the mountains either because of lack of time or physical fitness, or due to sheer want of the adventure streak, there are mountain flight to simulate the experience.
The one hour flight takes you within camera range of some of the highest peaks in the world, and cruising this close to awe- inspiring massifs of rock and ice, is an out of this earth experience. The aircraft takes off and heads eastward and almost immediately, the peaks come into view. The first peak that appears on your horizon is the majestic Shisa Pangma, standing 8013m tall. To its right, appears Dorje Lhakpa(6,966m), looking like a massif figure of 8, lying prone and covered in snow. To its right is Phurbi Chyachu, which looms over the Kathmandu Valley.
Next on your vision is Choba Bhamre, rather small in this company at 5933m, but singularly stubborn as it remains unconquered to this day. Then comes Mt. Gaurishankar( 7, 134M), standing out sharp and conspicuous - Hindus believe that Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati protect this mountain.
As the flight moves toward the eastern Himalaya, a succession of majestic mountains follows. Melungtse, with a plateau – like top stands at 7,023M; Chugimago is at 6,297m, and still remains to be scaled. Mt Numbur stands at 6,956m. Then Karyolung, a gleaming white mountain at 6,511m, and Cho Oyu, the sixth highest in the world at 8,021m.
The last and most exciting stretch of the journey takes you close to the 7,952m- tall gyachungkang, which is considered as extremely tough climb. To its right is Pumori at 7,161m and Nuptse at 7855m. Finally, there is Mt. Everest itself ( 8,848m), called Sagarmatha by Nepalese and Chomolungma by the Tibetans. It is an altogether different feeling as one comes face to face with worlds tallest and most enigmatic of mountains. Mountain flights & Ultra Light Flights are also can be conducted from Pokhara. Spectacular Views of Annapurna & Mt Dhaulagiri Ranges can be viewed in the Sky of Pokhara.
